I think a Jak and Daxter could do wonders for this system. It could win over a lot of the Sony fan base.

And ratchet and clank. Even just some ps2 hd remakes would be a blast.

The could pretty much just unleash an endless stream of ps2 games for it and I'd be pretty happy.

A Vita only Metal Gear, Gran Turismo, God Of War, Dragon Quest, GTA, Final Fantasy...maybe I forgot some franchises, but the others I can think of are on their way to the Vita.

Couldn't agree more. Those are the franchises they need now to get hardware sales up, and then they can focus on new experiences & sequels to PSP exclusives.

The sales of the Vita would have skyrocketed if they came out with Gran Turismo, GTA, God of War, Assassin's Creed, Final Fantasy, Metal Gear, and Call of Duty all in the same year.

We have Assassin's Creed and Call of Duty, so next year we need to see the rest at E3.

If they hope to have any success with call of duty on the vita, they are gonna have to come alot harder than blops declassified. That is just a deplorable trailer they released and tbh i haven't heard anyone say "wow i cant wait to play that" after seeing the trailer. Treyarch should have made the game, then i believe it would have been a "hit" for the vita, and a definite system seller. But now it won't sell anymore than resistance did, probably b/c it's being developed by the same shitty dev, Nihilistic.

I wish for the Okami Remastered version for PSVITA.

I was gonna watch this, but the thought of listening to greg miller talk is just too much right now.

Command and conquer would be the bollox on vita especially with all te touch screen capabilities for selecting units. A supreme commander type game would be great too.

There are tons but I'd really like to see Red Dead and inFAMOUS. Maybe also a MGS exclusive and I know it'll never happen but Mass Effect.

Castlevania in 2D would be great.. Ill be happy with that series alone..
XXXL  +   1255d ago
I agree. Castlevania game makes a vita an instant purchase for me
Qrphe  +   1255d ago
ANY RPG. I need my RPGs on Vita.
SandWitch  +   1255d ago

Qrphe  +   1255d ago
I exaggerated a "bit" lol, already had RO and P4G pre-ordered.

Didn't know Zero Escape was an RPG!!!

Is there finally a release date for New Little King's Story?!?!?! :D

Isn't Ruin coming out this month?

Oh snap, I though Zero Escape will have some RPG elements. Did not expect to see fully visual novel in West.


New Little King's Story releases October 5 in Europe. Not sure about Warrior's Lair (formerly known as Ruin). I think it was delayed to 2013.

Vita isnt even a year old yet.. I bet the 2nd wave of games in 2013 are going to be bad a$$.. Dragons Crown & Soul Sacrifice already are on my list
topekomsi  +   1255d ago
I sure hope you are right, i want the console experience in my hands they promised me. Not chopped up, watered down versions of ps3 games. It would be nice if they would just unlock psn games for the vita.
DivineAssault  +   1255d ago
devs need some time to perfect the development on vita titles & theyre doing a damn fine job because most launch titles were up there with ps3 graphics.. ITS NOT a PS3 nor as powerful but it will look damn good n play good.. I tell u one thing, vita has more on board memory than ps3 but less VRAM.. It was an investment that i would do all over again but they shouldve spread out those launch titles instead of releasing em all at once.. Its cool tho cuz LBP vita is coming this month & even the original devs said its the definitive version by far..
topekomsi  +   1253d ago
@divineassault Yeah it is one powerful lil machine, yesterday i picked up uncharted:golden abyss and unit 13, Both of these games are amazing. The graphics are good, gameplay is good.

Also games like soundshapes and puddle are giving the goods in the psn games dept. I just want the full 6vs6 or 8vs8 multiplayer that i know the vita is capable of.

Valkyria Chronicles
Civilization Revolution
Dead Space
Demon's/Dark Souls

Its simple really, all Sony has to do is sign exclusive deals with Capcom and Squarenix and the rest will take care of itself.

Capcom could essentially provide them with exclusive resident evils, monster hunter, breath of fire and some other popular games.

Squarenix could then take care of the rest with exclusive Dragon quest, Kingdom hearts, Final fantasy and more.

All Sony has to be willing to do is simply pay these guys atleast for one year of the vitas lifecycle and trust me you will see the big difference. Believe me this isnt the xbox in japan, people will buy this platform provided it has the right content on display persona golden proved that with nearly a month worth of sales.

As far as rockstar or any of those companies are concern i wouldnt worry about it, they are likely to support Sony anyways but more so with Something like this taking place.

Sony has about 12 1st party studios left, ill say get atleast 4 of those making new exclusive ips for the vita. It only makes sense since ps3 risks are still among the highest. Like those studios they shut down could have been downsized and move to exclusive vita development like ben studios.

Who knows we could had a proper socom out of zipper on vita and a total new ip from liverpool at that. I dont know i am just saying thats what i would do instead of focusing on crossplay.

And while i am at it, just to fill those long dry gaps, i would build a small studio like they did superbot ent for the sole purpose of making HD remasters and have them bring the top ps2 25rpgs to vita. This is alot cheaper than every thing else i mentioned. And it would really push vita sales, specially in japan. Nintendo does it with 15 year old zelda games and it works well for them, i dont see why it couldn't work in this case. Just imagine FF12,Dragon quest 8,Kingdom hearts 1&2,Rogue galaxy,Star ocean, Wild arms, Arc the lad,Skies of arcadia, Grandia among others? All in HD with trophies on the go on that oled screen?

Also Sony needs to cut the price of those memory cards,they have to.

Finally, i would simply market the thing but in a very simple manner like the old psone commercials. Game footage then psvita logo, its simple really. None of those confusing ideals they work so hard to try to get across to people.

Remember you are selling games nothing else.

Anything, so long as it doesn't suck.

Just gimme games. It's no different from any other console, in that respect: give it good games, and it'll succeed. Well, a few have failed even WITH good games, and a few had succeeded with not very many good games.
